Salary Negotiation: RQ

Reid’s delightful teacher, Mrs. James, runs her classroom as a town, called Jamestown, naturally. The citizens of Jamestown each have a job which comes with a set salary, and occasionally they get the opportunity to spend their savings on provisions (candy, toys, etc). Some citizens–or at least one of them–are arguing for a wage increase.

    Reid is quite persuasive. He sees the bigshots getting paid more but blows through the smoke and calls them out (i.e., the work is easy…give me a break). He also wisely emphasizes that he alone is the guy responsible for doing his tasks and that he’s willing to take on more work. I’d hire Reid to advocate for me. Good job!

    This is SO good. The concept. The process. The practice.
    Well done Mr Reid!

    Quite logical approach, Reid: listing your responsibilities; comparing them to other jobs, willing to take on more responsibility, complimenting the person who has the ability to consider your request, and asking for consideration and a response from her. She will likely be persuaded, or, at the least, she’ll want you as her debate partner when you run for president. Nice thinking and writing, Beedo!

    Update: Mrs. James not only gave him a raise, she doubled his salary. She liked the fact that Reid turned in the two earlier drafts of this letter. Mrs. James alternately goes by the title of queen and president of Jamestown. Pretty benevolent queen!
